Take a classic looking embroidery stitch and decontextualize it. Blend craftsmanship and industrial processing and broaden the imagination to create a stylish, sophisticated piece which feeds into the symbolic feminine universe. Expand it. Two rings become armrests similar to the simple style of a bamboo bag; the shell, which has something of the feel of a baseball mitt, is an open tanktop ready to be slipped into, a comfy welcoming nest. The side embroidery –in smocking stitch – render the draping contemporary, and give a lightness to the form, giving the chair the grace and sophistication of a classic fashion accessory.Injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam over internal steel frame. Arms are leather-wrapped tubular steel in the same color of the chair or on request. Swivel base and column are steel powder coat finish. Smock collection covers are not removable.
A narrative which is the natural continuation of the Lowland project. The central theme of Highlands is movement, the innate potential for verticality of the backrest and armrests. Two possible positions, using a smooth, almost organic movement which is never mechanical. Flexibility which inevitably renders the elements modular. The surfaces and the various elements of upholstery, the tailoring, the stitching detail on the covers, and the care used all combine in this highly expressive piece. A tribute to the couture-spirit of both the designer and the company.Seat in stress-resistant polyurethane foam in varied densities and polyester fiber on wood frame. Back and arm in injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam and polyester fiber over internal steel frame with articulated reclining mechanism. Feet are black polypropylene screwed to the frame. Seats modules are connected with black ABS linking devices under the legs. The Highlands collection covers are removable.
My Beautiful Backside is a collection of seats whose backrests are a composition of highly coloured, floating cushions in various shapes. The wider your seat, the more cushions you can have. Our use of oversize symbols, such as the buttons on cushion backs, is a way of conveying a variety of messages. These symbols also provide a means of customising each chair, making it unique, just as you would add little distinguishing touches to an article of clothing. The top mattress is covered with a composition of different objects and since they draw inspiration from a modern princess they’re embroidered in gold and silver.Seats in stress-resistant polyurethane foam in varied densities and polyester fiberfill on wood frame.
